Sophie and Sienna were supposed to be discharged from hospital today but baby has jaundice so needs to go 'under the lamp' which means they could be in a couple more days. Matthew is disappointed they have to stay in and Sophie is upset. I think they just want to get home now and get on with being a family. But babies are a law unto themselves aren't they. From the picture I posted yesterday it's hard to tell how tiny Sienna is, so here's one of Aunty Amy holding her. Sophie was quite relaxed about us all having a cuddle, even Thomas, who is taking his new responsibility as Uncle very seriously indeed and has already asked about baby sitting duties.
I think I've said before that we get on very well with Matthew's Mum and Stepdad and it was lovely for him that we could all be there together last night and share in the excitement and joy together.
So, over the past couple of days I've been pottering with the crafty bits I've got on the go.
I've been playing around with the fleece I bought trying to make some little hats. It's been a bit of a faff in an enjoyable way, as I couldn't decide what style to go for. In the end I went for a very basic one as the ones that were sewn at the crown looked too square. This is for a baby but if I make any for an older child I think I'll tie some ribbon around with a few beads on as a finishing touch.
I also ordered a skip stitch blade for the rotary cutter which I needed for a little blanket project that I wanted to try out. It arrived today and so far it's looking pretty good.
Plus I sewed the border onto the final quilt.
This is a tiny one and just used up the bits of material I had left over.
I went into Middleton with Mum this morning. She was due her eye test which was a very thorough process. We were in Boots for an hour and that only included 5 minutes tops for choosing her new frames! We had our usual coffee and then picked up the bits and bobs we needed.
And yesterday I treated myself to some ice-cream. This is packed full of chewy caramel pieces and as nobody else really likes ice-cream it's all mine.
